  • Kerry on the couch

    By David Suissa

    July 1, 2013 | 3:08 pm

    We now join U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry lying on the couch in his therapist’s office:

    Therapist: “When did you get back from Jerusalem?”

    Kerry: “Hmm, I’m not sure. I ran out of Ambien on the trip so I’m a little sleep-deprived right now. But I think it was this morning.”...

  • The Plague of Exclusion

    By Michelle K. Wolf

    March 19, 2013 | 11:55 pm

    I’ve been getting the sad stories via email, direct messages on Facebook, and over Kiddush at shul—mothers sharing with me that their child with mild special needs has been asked to leave a Jewish school/camp or other setting. What’s so astonishing is that these are mostly kids...

    Jeff Bernhardt is an author, playwright, psychotherapist and Jewish educator who directs social-action programs at Temple Aliyah in Woodland Hills; he is also the lead tutor for the b’nai mitzvah program at Temple Israel of Hollywood. But his new play, “Therapy” — opening March 2...

  • Cheryl Cohen Greene: Sex Surrogate

    February 19, 2013 | 6:15 am

    Cheryl Cohen Greene has spent the last 40 years making her living having sex with people, but she’s not a prostitute. Greene is one of a small number of specialists in the United States known as sex surrogates, whose job it is to help clients with sexual anxieties become more...

  • RHONJ – Time To Go Manzo

    By Ilana Angel

    August 27, 2012 | 7:23 am

    This week is what seems like the 8th week in Napa. The show is all about everyone talking crap about Teresa, her defending herself, chicks fake crying, men acting like children, and the fans getting one step closer to being alcoholics because it has become near impossible to watch...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Double Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    August 20, 2012 | 9:42 am

    This is the one housewife show I enjoy watching.  That said, they are testing my patience.  It is predictable and not real, but somehow I look forward to it each week.  I missed last week as I was away, so this is a double dose of blogging.  Two weeks, one blog.  Lets begin!

    Hang...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Hit the Road

    By Ilana Angel

    July 30, 2012 | 9:33 am

    We start the week with everyone packing for the trip to Napa.  A hurricane is about to hit New Jersey, but all the women are leaving their children behind and flying away from the storm.  Not sure it is what I would have done, but I guess the show must go on.  By show of course I...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Men’s Night

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 6:33 pm

    We all continue to watch this show even though none of us can stand it.  Why do we do it?  We all have different reasons I suppose.  For me it’s the large amount of alcohol I drink to get through the first five minutes.  I also watch because I lost my remote when the season...

  • RHoNJ – Gia Rocks & Melissa Sucks

    By Ilana Angel

    July 15, 2012 | 9:34 pm

    We start off the train wreck with Melissa proving she cannot sing, and she cannot dance either.  Chris Judd is humiliating himself by trying to choreograph her, which is hilarious.  We flash to Gia learning her dance moves and we see that she is fabulous.  It is really rather...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey – Oy Vey!

    By Ilana Angel

    July 9, 2012 | 9:07 am

    I love this show but it has reached the point where writing about it is more to mock them than talk about how great it is.  Everyone is predictable, many are pathetic, and some have clearly worn off their welcome and need to get the hell off of our televisions before even mocking...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey – Another Fake Doctor?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 1, 2012 | 11:20 pm

    The episode this week is proof that Bravo is now struggling to put a show together in New Jersey.  It was boring, dragged out, full of inconsistencies, and dripping with fakeness.  It’s hard to care enough to watch for an hour and near impossible to blog about.  You have to wonder...

  • Feeling Confused

    By Natalie Landver

    March 24, 2012 | 10:40 am

    Dear Therapists,

    My wife and I have been together for 3 years and we love each other very much. However, she believes that I am addicted to cigarettes.  I personally don’t see it like that.  I agree that sometimes I smoke too much, and I can be a bit irresponsible at times. But...

  • I’m Worried

    By Monica Farassat

    January 31, 2012 | 9:55 pm

    Hi

    I have recently been obsessing over my future. I don’t know specifically what I am so worried about but I have been thinking about it a lot. With the new year, I think a lot about where I am going to be by the end of the year. I worry about my career, whether or not I am making...

  • Bethenny Frankel: Drowning in Lies While “Lost” at Sea

    By Ilana Angel

    October 5, 2011 | 11:49 pm

    I used to think Bethenny Frankel was funny.  She was obnoxious and over the top, but had enough truly funny moments on the first season of the Real Housewives of New York that I was able to overlook the annoying parts of her.  Over the past three years however, I have lost respect...

  • Bethenny Frankel, Reality Star, Has No Grasp on Reality

    By Ilana Angel

    October 2, 2011 | 9:00 pm

    Bethenny Frankel was on Ellen this week and it was fascinating.  She cannot stop lying, and when her lies were questioned by Ellen, she lies over the lies.  You can actually watch her dig herself into a hole and it’s interesting to see.  I honestly don’t know how she does it.

  • No more tears of a clown

    By Ryan Torok

    March 15, 2011 | 6:51 pm

    A man walks into a shrink’s office and says he wants to commit suicide.

    “What you need is a good belly laugh,” the shrink says. “Go across the street to the circus. There’s a clown there who makes everybody laugh.”

    “Doc, I’ve been to the circus across the street,”...

  • In Israel, cutting edge help for visually impaired kids

    October 29, 2008 | 11:14 pm

    Strolling among the young children playing on ELIYA's vibrant and colorful campus in Petah Tikva, just outside Tel Aviv, feels, for an instant, like a visit to any well-run preschool. But ELIYA is that and more -- a preschool for blind and visually impaired children designed to...
  • Cancer survivor brings art, courage to other patients

    By Rachel Heller

    September 18, 2008 | 1:57 am

    Judi Kaufman has trouble remembering numbers. So the two-time brain cancer survivor, who is now living with her third tumor, assigns colors to numbers to help keep them straight.

    The system is simple and intuitive: zero is white, 13 is black. Eighteen -- chai -- is red.

    "Red is the...

  • Life lessons from the trenches of cancer survival

    By Roberto Loiederman

    September 4, 2008 | 1:36 am

    On my neck there's a large, upside-down L-shaped scar. One leg of the L runs from my right shoulder blade upward to just below my right ear; the other leg takes a 90-degree turn, following the jaw line to my chin. The right side of my neck -- the inside of the L -- looks as if it's...
  • Cancer gives musician a new song

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    September 4, 2008 | 1:31 am

    This time, Charlie Lustman hadn't come to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for medical tests or to endure another round of chemotherapy. Despite having lost three-quarters of his jawbone, Lustman had come to celebrate, to inspire -- and to sing.

    Lustman was at the Samuel Oschin...

    "In Treatment," a new HBO drama series, showcases therapist Paul Weston (played by Gabriel Byrne), treating a different client every day of the week and culminating in his seeking out supervision for himself with his ex-supervisor after an eight-year hiatus.

    The drama, debuting Jan....

  • Film: Opposites attract—and seek therapy—in ‘Ira & Abby’

    By Steven Rosen

    September 13, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Jennifer Westfeldt is gracious, even humble, in accepting the compliment that starts this interview. She has been told that a recent essay on cineastes -- "Jewish Humor, After Woody" -- called her "the most intriguing candidate to forge a career of intelligent, dialogue-driven films...
  • TV: Tishby gives Israeli drama American ‘Treatment’

    By Susan Karlin

    September 13, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    When Noa Tishby moved from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles, it was to make it as an actress. Two years later, she's now a history-making producer, spearheading the first original Israeli TV drama series to be picked up by an American network.

    HBO has already ordered a full season of an...

  • Dealing With Schmutz

    By David Suissa

    August 16, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    The other day, a remarkable neighbor named Dennis Brown was telling me about a Chasidic kid who had rebelled against his parents and his religious lifestyle and gotten into drugs. After a couple of rough years, he got professional help, sobered up and started reconnecting with his...
  • Men: the ill topic of choice

    By Merissa Nathan Gerson

    June 28, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    It happens to the smartest and most beautiful of women. Enter Ms. X. We run into each other four years after we were friends in college and decide to meet for dinner.

    Ms. X is skinnier now, wears a lot more makeup and is no longer all about T-shirts and jeans. She is high-style and...
  • Film: Talmudic tradition translates into ‘Treatment’

    In another life, Oren Rudavsky might have been a psychoanalyst. "I often think of it as my alternate career, he said.

    In this life, Rudavsky has forged a successful career as a New York City-based filmmaker known for award-winning documentaries about Jewish life, including the...
  • L.A. Gafni Event Canceled

    By Julie G Fax

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Revelations about sexual misconduct have led to the cancellation of an upcoming local event featuring prominent Rabbi Mordechai Gafni.

    Gafni had been scheduled for a public talk at Stephen S. Wise Temple on June 9. Over the past two years, since being appointed to the Wisdom Chair in...
